151-0502-00LMechanics 2: Deformable Solids and Structures
Prerequisite: 151-0501-00L Mechanics 1: Kinematics and Statics

This course is only for students of Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Human Movement Sciences.

Students in Human Movement Sciences and Sport must enrol in "Mechanics 1" and "Mechanics 2" as a two-semester course.
O6 credits4V + 2UD. Mohr
AbstractStress tensor, deformations, linear elastic solids, bending of prismatic beams, numerical methods, bending, torsion, plastic work and deformation energy, energy methods, buckling.
ObjectiveFor the mechanical design of systems, knowledge about basic concepts of continuum mechanics are indispensable. These include mechanical stress, deformations, etc. which are demonstrated on simple examples resulting in an understanding which is both mathematically correct and intuitive. In this course students learn the basic concepts of the mechanics of deformable media that they will later apply in other courses such as Dimensioning which are closer to real engineering applications.
ContentSpannungstensor, Verzerrungen, linearelastische Körper, spezielle Biegung prismatischer Balken, numerische Methoden, allgemeinere Biegeprobleme, Torsion, Arbeit und Deformationsenergie, Energiesätze und -verfahren, Knickung.

151-0712-00LEngineering Materials and Production IIO4 credits3V + 1UK. Wegener
AbstractKnowledge about the properties and application area of metals. Understanding the fundamentals of high polymers and ceramics for engineers that can be confronted with material decisions in construction and production.
ObjectiveKnowledge about the properties and application area of metals. Understanding the fundamentals of high polymers and ceramics for engineers that can be confronted with material decisions in construction and production.
ContentThe lecture contains two parts:
For metallic materials fatigue and heat treatment will be discussed. Physical properties such as thermal, electric and magnetic properties will be examined. Important iron- and non-iron- alloys will be introduced and their cases of applications will be discussed.
In the second part of the lecture the structure and the properties of the high polymers and ceramics will be discussed. Important subareas are the crystalline and non-crystalline materials and the porous solid bodies, the thermal- mechanical engineering material behaviour, as well as the probabilistic fracture mechanics. Beside the mechanic- the physical-properties will be also discussed. Engineering material related fundamentals of the productions engineering will be discussed.

151-0302-00LInnovation ProcessO2 credits1V + 1UM. Meboldt, Q. Lohmeyer
AbstractThe lecture focuses on the basics of agile product development, in which development processes are structured in the form of several short sprints. The lecture deepens the relevant technical and methodological knowledge for the implementation of the characteristic core activities: Design, Build, Test.
ObjectiveStudents understand the concept of agile product development and know the most important elements for planning and executing a sprint. They know individual methods for finding and selecting solutions and can apply basic methods for risk and cost analysis. Students are also able to calculate drives and mechanisms for different operating conditions.
Content- Agile product development
- Creativity and selection methods
- Mechanical mechanisms
- Electric motors
- Design principles
- Risk and cost analysis
- Prototyping and testing
- Market and innovation
Lecture notesLecture slides are distributed via Ilias.
Prerequisites / NoticeFor Bachelor studies in Mechanical and Process Engineering the lecture "Maschinenelemente" (HS) is examined together with "Innovationsprozess" (FS).
252-0832-00LComputer Science Information O4 credits2V + 2UR. Sasse, M. Schwerhoff
AbstractThe course covers the fundamental concepts of computer programming with a focus on systematic algorithmic problem solving. Taught language is C++. No programming experience is required.
ObjectivePrimary educational objective is to learn programming with C++. When successfully attended the course, students have a good command of the mechanisms to construct a program. They know the fundamental control and data structures and understand how an algorithmic problem is mapped to a computer program. They have an idea of what happens "behind the scenes" when a program is translated and executed.
Secondary goals are an algorithmic computational thinking, understanding the possibilities and limits of programming and to impart the way of thinking of a computer scientist.
ContentThe course covers fundamental data types, expressions and statements, (Limits of) computer arithmetic, control statements, functions, arrays, structural types and pointers. The part on object orientation deals with classes, inheritance and polymorphy, simple dynamic data types are introduced as examples.
In general, the concepts provided in the course are motivated and illustrated with algorithms and applications.
Lecture notesA script written in English will be provided during the semester. The script and slides will be made available for download on the course web page.
